I have too admitt I didnt grow up watching the Simpsons, although later in life I did get my dose of Simpsons and it was alright. I prefere family guy as its good for a nice easy laugh. But lately Ive just been passing Family Guy, as for South Park Ive maybe watched 4 full episodes in my life, it was alot of fun but meh. King of the Hill I never really watch, seems too old for me and its just not that funny. So I have too say Futurama takes the cake, I mean can you go wrong with an alcoholic Robot? A poor and starving lobster man? An an old and senile yet brilliant scientist? best TV show evar!

King of the Hill is probably my favorite show on television, it's smart, witty, and has a ton of hidden humor in it.

I remember the first time I saw the episode where the real Rusty Shackleford shows up. I damn near fell off of the sofa!

I have to agree.

Hmmmmm... All great shows in their moments.  I really liked Frisky Dingo, it was my favorite show on adult swim until Dark Place came along, but being that I own seasons 3 - 10 of the Simpsons, I'm going to say that's my favorite.  It's possible the other shows creators are the same (especially Futurama) but in just listening to the commentary of the Simpsons you get a real since of how much they care about their characters.  And for all the talk of the Simpsons going down in quality, have you actually given a chance to the most recent season or have you given up on the show already?  I think now that some of the best writers don't have to write for the Simpson movie any more, they are able to make much higher quality epsiodes then the past few seasons.

I barely watch it those days if channel surfing and I come across and episode I'll often watch but you can't say it's the same quality as season 3 through 9. A few years ago i used to say The Simpsons has dropped in quality but it's still better than 80% of all television. It's been getting lower though it's probably now just on par it's worth watching but not must see TV.

I really did enjoy the movie though.

In my opinion, the movie was good, but quite disappointing.

Actually I was pleasantly surprised by the movie but then I was expecting something of similar quality of the current episodes. While the movie wasn't great it was much better than I thought so in the end I really enjoyed it.
